The "something is blocking it" part is right. You just have to find out what it is. It sounds like the PC was on a network and the system admin made registry changes or used a policy editor to restrict users.

Many admins do that these days to avoid "road apples", which are CDs or USB drives, with trojans on them, planted around office buildings. It's guaranteed that some worker will find it and use it in the office and compromise the entire network.
